    Really enjoyed the itinerary, Nikki was an awesome guide and very knowledgeable which greatly enhanced our experience. Youris (the bus driver) was very accomodating and knowledgeable, his driving skills where excellent and made us feel safe and relaxed throughout the entire journey.

    They're 2 forms of the European Experience tour, 12 and 14 day (includes 2 days in London). They're two swirling around on Tourradar We opted for the 12 day one since we can save money / better location on our own. Overall this tour was the best decision we (a family of four) made to explore Europe. It's fast paced (wake up early and hit the road to cover as much ground as possible). Annarieke, our tour guide, is lovely and made our experience quite enjoyable. The hotel in Paris didn't have AC and the windows are sealed shut so that caused quite a stir amongst the tour members. Certain days, the days are organized around the optional experiences so you might be stuck in a hotel if you opt out (they also try to make you feel bad by saying "almost everyone" is going on the tour so you feel left out). But don't cave in if you don't want to spend the money on some of the experiences (the carriage ride and moulan rouge are really really overpriced according to my fellow your members). They also don't tell you the schedule of the days in advance so you can't really plan around them. So plan to get a taxi if you don't to do optional dinners in Rome and Paris. But overall, the tour was organized and ran smoothly. Bus was comfortable (we slept a ton on the road), rest stops were adequate to get some snacks, and the included dinners did their job to feed us and help bond.
